Does anyone have a clue what this is... it's in the left hand fairing pocket ... something the PO has done and I don't have a glue why it's there ... hoping someone would know... here are the pictures of the object in question ... I have turned the knob and didn't see or hear anything happening ...

Sure looks like a fader knob that would have something to do with radio/intercom. Does the fader knob up at handlebar work? OEM stereo/radio or something more?

Yup, speaker fader knob. The Aspencade came with only front speakers. Aftermarket rear speakers were available and they came with front/rear fader. Where it got mounted was up to the installer.

Learn something new everyday. Only the SE had the fader on pod, what year did that start? That 2000 SE knob on the control I remember seeing is a fader, right?

Some are on the left control pod, others are in a housing just below the key switch where the emblem is. Don't know what years/models got what.
